The episode is called "The City on The Edge of Forever." I love Star Wars as well and just started watching all the Star Trek episodes. Which on Star you can watch the TOS and ENTERPRISE(The newest one). Though I am really into old sci-fi books, into is an understatement, obsessed would be a better word. I recently read an excellent novel called "To Your Scattered Bodies Go" by Philip Jose Farmer. Just one of the best sci-fi books I have read in the past couple years.

My negative views on Christianity have mainly to do with my own family members blending their religious views with a miltaryesque republican viewpoint. I do consider myself a republican along the vein of Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt. But this Modern Social Christian Conservative just down right scares me. I thought religion was about helping other people, and that experience is what make you a better person; not just being a Christian redeems you. I also consider questioning the Government to a cornerstone of Republicanism, and while many do, I believe they question what they are told to question. Healthcare is a good example, yet they don't question oil subsidies, and I just watched a clip of Bill Reilly literally suggesting if you question the war in Iraq then you are not patriotic. And Fox is supposed to be the quintessential conservative news channel, I watch it for laughs more than anything now.
